Brief Answer:
Miminal delays are normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

You are unlikely to be pregnant.

In women it is common to have periods delayed periods once in a while. The delay could be upto one week in some women and is perfectly normal. Delayed periods might be due to change in place, increased stress, change in weight etc. These situations of delayed periods are also associated with flow changes too. You need not be worried about it.

You are not pregnant and everything is fine. Wait for you periods for 5 more days.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
